everyone to the new america foundation. i am at the 11 from the open technology institute. some of you may know this is an operational think tank that brings many disciplines together to collaborate on improving access and control over technology. in supporting one of those disciplines, one directly capped with the research and development of polk and technologies such as the wireless project, i especially appreciate the purpose of this event, this water multi city series, bringing people of different backgrounds and experiences together. my team's an official model is not even space ships are built in a vacuum. the technologist's work like planners and researchers, advocates and organizes to assure the technology serve certain needs as we find them out in the world. third monday is an event series of nine cities, the tenth or eleventh just came on line and as i said multiple times, last count, strive to support similar connections between local activists. each city brings its own particular character into the mix. in d.c. the realm of access and technology often have policy advocacy. our
22. that is very serious. in the age of technology and the information age, we produce 70% of engineers. china produces 400,000 engineers. you know, this is serious stuff. we're talking about the future and our role in the future. and we need to begin to make adjustments. we need to make them quite soon. we cannot sit around and be enamored of support and entertainment and sports and glitz and glamour. i think we all get it. because we are the pinnacle nation in the world right now. have another pinnacle nation's forests. ancient egypt, greece. clinical nations. number one, no competition. going to be there forever. or so they thought. so what happened to each and every one of them? basically they became enamored with sports and entertainment and lifestyles of the rich and famous. they turned a blind eye to political corruption. they lost their moral compass and went right down the tubes. some will say that actually happened to the united states. but i think an honest assessment would demonstrate that it is already in the process of happening. the real question is can we b
. it was a revolution that was followed up by alan, who created the original abstract computer technology on the effort to disprove it. but instead he wanted to build an -- he discovered that just as mathematics is limited by incompleteness so is computer science. he concluded that ultimately all computers are depended on a creator when he called an oracle, which in computer science is a programmer. all i if was extend his insight to say that in economics, the oracle is the entrepreneur. >> you have a chapter in knowledge and power. >> who has a website and i had writes about telecom in this that website. it's a way to say economic based on the theory. >> is it a supply side economic book. >> yes, it is. it shows that demand is almost devoid of information. the knowledge in the economy really is comes from the supply. the goods and services we all create and trade with one another. as thomas pointed out all economic transactions are really transactions of knowledge. differential knowledge. each of us knows different things, and that's really what we're trading. the trerlists conceived in physic. you ca
need to stay on this course of putting through these technology-grounded efficiency rules for a whole range of appliances and the like. in fact, on analogies point i would raise a 2001 report from the national academy of sciences that exams d. o. e. fossil and energy efficiency port portfolio in the first twenty years. and concluded that the 22 programs the analyzed which cost about $13 billion total between '78 and 2001 yield the economic benefits of about $40 billion. so a return on investment. i think but an interesting part of the story is the study attributed -- to three efficiency programs that cost $11 million. even relatively small efficiency programs can yield results both in economic benefit and reduction of carbon emission. regoing to be strongly focused on advancing this energy efficiency agenda in multiple do main and certainly our responsibility with rulemaking i will assure you we will maintain strong pressure in this direction. another key provision of the president's climate plan districts epa to issue rules for cutting carbon emissions for new and existing power plan
. and this is a revolution that was held up by alan turn who created the original abstract computer technology in an effort to disprove. instead, he wanted to build the ultimate all-purpose computer. he discovered that just as mathematics is limited by incompleteness, so is computer science. and he concluded that ultimately all computers are dependent on a creator, which she called an oracle which computer science is a programmer. and all i did was extend this inside and say that in economics the oracle is the entrepreneur. >> host: george gilder, you have a chapter in "knowledge and power", entropy economics. >> guest: well, and to be economics, i get that title from brad swanson, his website called entropy economics. he writes about telecom brilliantly. and in to the economics is really another way to say economics based on of affirmation. >> host: is this a supply-side economics book? >> guest: yes coming it is. it shows that demand is really almost devoid of information so that all the knowledge and the economy really is coming from the supply, the goods and services that will create and trade with one
unfree. and over some number of decades became much for your and much were democratic. >> does technology eventually make democracy inevitable? >> one of the observations that we can with actually came from me and mark. we were in the mr a little over a month ago, less than 1% as access to the unit. one of the worst decade shift in the entire world. now it's in some country and session. still very much speculative about whether its democratic transition. what was interesting about myanmar and perhaps something that shocked even us is even the less than 1% of the population has access to the internet everyone had heard of it. they understood the unit as a set of values, as a concept as an id even before they experienced it as a user or a tool. the understanding was not based on a chinese interpretation but it was not based on autocrats version. they understood in terms of its western value of the free flow of information and civil liberties. what that means to us is your 57% of the world's population living under some kind of an autocracy. what happens when they try to create an autocratic
mostly by how different things are now. the technology is such a you can get a flash mob to show up if you want but 1963 you get 200,000 people back to the mall and you would be below horned. organizing was remarkable and that to me -- i would like people to understand the enormity of that. >> a very short time a group of people came together because they believe in something. and they put together the most unbelievable moment in american history. >> on the march on washington to go forward but the young people who want to be journalists tuesday that they have an obligation to cover poverty, to cover race, to go deeper and find the real story. >> we are missing the pbs video documentary on the march tonight because we would rather be here. >> will be on line. >> look at it and see the people that came to the march. these are ordinary men and women dressed like they are going to church and they believe they are going to church. >> i think that the world came together around an idea that all men, and we soon added women and children, gay lesbian and children are created equal so it cr
today. specific program managers are afraid of applying l.e.d. technology because in the short-term it costs more and they are evaluated specifically on a one-year timeframe for money even though the system can't cut a lifetime system that l.e.d. lights will save thousands of hours in replacement costs. that is not -- they stick with legacy systems. if you were to spend money right now it would save you money in the long runs. >> to piggyback on that i come from industry and even an industry innovation takes a long time to end up with the widgets in the gadgets. let's look at cars. cell phones have been ubiquitous in people's hands for a long time. finally in 2014 models are starting to everett ties the cell phone holder next to the cupholder. that is not even technological and evasion. it's just someone that says i'm designing a car and i will just kind of peace over that okay so this is industry. this is a buildup industry from detroit that says what is competing with the best of the best so it's just a mindset or look at tablets. tablets have been ubiquitous for a long time
there's a whole world people are fascinated in. entrepreneurship, technology, and someone needs to demystify it for everyone else. so "dot-complicated" take a look at the tech-obsessed world we live in and how it's changing our career and lives and our families. >> how do you do that? >> it's interesting but i talk a lot about finding tech life balance. there's been a lot of talk on work life balance, but if you go home from work and still buried in the cell phone, if you're sitting on your laptop next to your husband at home. you are still working. you haven't really found that work life balance. so i talk lot about how to find tech life balance in your home, if your job, in your love life, and kind of all area of communication. >> are you saying turn off the excise -- device and go off facebook? >> i think there's a time and place for everybody. i think if you take a little bit of time to unplug to remember there's a world when you look up from your screen you can enjoy it. it makes you all the more productive, refreshed, relaxed when you return to that online world, also. >>

for work? automation and technology make it so that in fact we need fewer human hands in a bunch of arenas where we used to so that means we have to think about work quite differently and about the society needs for the contribution. and i think that we will have our best chance at getting to some of those changes if we have a really fully multiracial, multi justice movement and that is explicit about race and the way that gordon has mentioned that engages everybody that has a stake in taking their racial order a part. the changing demographics of america present such an opportunity for us. we are coming into a period that we can redefine what it means to be american because for too long that has been a title that has been captured and owned by white folks. and many of us that have been here for 200, 300 years, since the very beginning since before there were white folks, you know, it really is not feeling like we were american. we were the other. so we are in a moment where we are getting ready to actually calotte back and own what it means to be american and i think from that will come a
-to-face encounter we have to engage with someone. so that separation and use of technology does seem to promote intemperate hateful comment and we find people who say some really horrible things in the comments section to news stories that i mentioned, often they are your friends and neighbors but they're hiding behind a mask of anonymity and they feel empowered to vent in the way that they do. >> do you think there should be greater efforts to eliminate anonymity? should websites or google sites or such, facebook, not allow anonymous quotes? >> facebook doesn't allow anonymous the -- anonymity. what they do have though is a section where you can post things and not usual real name, and the way they dealt with that, there was a recent and frank meeting that wasn't funny at all what was intended to be, and they went to the host of that, the moderator and said, we'd like you to identify you or we will take them to we would like to stand behind what you posted and person who did that said, never mind. go ahead and take it down. i think and 95% of the cases that is so. anonymity on the internet is
you to think for a moment about the tremendous innovations particularly technological but not exclusively technological innovation during the particular period. think, for example, the first that comes to mind is of course photography. we have many of us who live here in new york who have probably gone to see the met show of civil war photography and civil war painting. it's interesting to think that the civil war was documented in the country from beginning to end by photographers. which is shocking, really. and often why thought about why it is the revolutionary war, which is brother again brother, country against country, why the war hasn't kept to the imagination the way the civil war has. in addition to obvious reasons likelet get rid of slavery once awhile. the reason is, i think, there wasn't photography at that particular time. we don't know what people looked like. we can't really see them strewn for maybe good reason or better. the battlefield. on to the photography. the railroad. it started just a little bit before the particular period and became so instrum
these and continued to open my mind to the potential of new technologies. after 35 years in the darkroom, i moved into the digital realm. digital technology not only changed the apparatus and a medium that transform how i absorbed the digital world and profoundly changed how i express what i see. so these are panelists, and we're going to start with john. i would love to give you the first word here. i mean, let's talk a little bit about "fortune" magazine in the 1930s but it starts on the cusp of the depression. henry decides to keep it going nonetheless. he had big ideas for a different kind of this is journalism. and he's hiring people like james agee, archibald -- >> dwight macdonald out of your mac. >> tell us about that period of time and if you would, segue into "cotton tenants" and tell us about how that -- >> sure. i was just chewing over your idea that he could himself so badly in some respect because he was a journalist. i think is because he was a poet. that's what he started out as. the other interesting thing about that, self conception as a journalist is that a lot of the people th
, brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >> host: walt mossberg, has technology plateaued? >> guest: oh, no, absolutely not. absolutely not. technology is always changing and always coming up with -- technology companies are always coming up with something new, and there are new technology companies all the time incubating, a lot of them are in what we call stealth mode. we don't even know who they are. certain technologies plateau and things move on, but in general, no. not at all. >> host: i guess i ask that because the last couple years we've had the explosion of smartphones, we've had tablets come online. what's out there? >> guest: well, first of all, there are vast numbers of people especially in the less developed cups, but even in the developed countries who don't own a smartphone and, certainly, there are vast thurms that don't own -- numbers that don't own a tablet. to give you a rough example, apple -- which leads in the tablet market -- has sold somewhere around 160 million ipads since 2010. that's a remarkable achievement and for people that own appl
in the rise of the personal computer which happens in the 1979, 1980 country. did you see technology as playing a role, even backstage there, the hints of this new order that would come in these stories transferred absolutely. absolutely the rise of telecommunications issues of import. ayatollah khomeini was an ex-offer much o of the iranian revolution in the communicate with his supporters through the state-of-the-art telephone switching system that had been installed by the americans for the show. he could call of anybody anywhere in iran and it was usually important for the iranian revolution. with the help of satellites of course which were, the cost to come down. satellite communications were very important. i think you'd see a lot of different levels in which the technology was influencing all this. pcs were not yet there, but i think they are very much a part of this moment. the technological aspect really deserves to be going into a lot more deeply than i was able to. >> host: tell me if you were to do a follow-up to the book, would you jump right in with 1980, or what is you
we have a text in epidemic. how can we use the recent sensors and mapping and technologies that are available in robotics to have the car drive itself? that is moonshot thinking. maybe you can't get their right away. you have a mercury mission and then jim and i and apollo. it's about a year. this is the prototype, isabel for the glass designer. by the way for the prototype, the first prototype they built they did it not in a month but a year-and-a-half they put it together. why couldn't school be like that, but set apart and do the design thinking then we start projects and businesses? we think 10x better, not 10%. when we are working with something two-thirds what can i do to move forward in what is the critique? a third, yes. this is a place we just wanted people to celebrate moonshot thinking. also looking more historical yet who already made it but let's celebrate the people taking decrease the risk. hear the proposals and help them to try to move the world for word and moonshot radical proposals. last i guess i would end on - it's so important to help kids find their
it and i say to all people, surely in the world war with no technology, no more than 40 monuments officers ever in italy, about 100 northern europe, if we can do the job we did then, we can certainly do a better job today, and that is why in 2007 i did found at the monuments been foundation for the preservation of art, and i would like to share with you a few minutes about the initial years of our work. ♪ ♪ >> the vision and leadership of western outlet leaders coming particular general eisenhower, made the protection of artistic and cultural treasures a priority and the return of stolen property and violence. the monuments been implemented and defected of that policy. their legacy is rich and filled with incredible examples of how to protect cultural treasures from armed conflict. but their legacy has been all but lost. we as a nation paid a high price for not having preserved and utilized that legacy. time is running out. for that reason i am announcing today the creation of the monuments men foundation for the preservation of art. its mission is to preserve the legacy of the unprece
life and the transplant surgerying with the whole body of technology and development of medicine, cleats cholesterol, we tell that story through my case and laid against the background of my time in public service. and i was uniquely blessed in many respects, obviously, you can never express enough gratitude for a donor or the donor's family. you cannot talk about what i went through and i survived it what without talking about liz, her sister, and my wife. we celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary next week. [applause] i -- when you go through everything we went through as a family, and the only way to go through it is as a family, if at all possible. i wake up every morning with a smile on my face thankful for a new day i never expected to see. and basically what the book is about, it's simon and shuster love it. it's called heart, american medical odyssey. i think it's a pretty good book. it's not political. it has nothing to do with politics. i suppose you could say that all of pry my critics say i never had a heart. [laughter] may want to have that problem -- this challenge
on partial data in the intervening years computer technology change the law. data change, there is tons of intermediate steps. we were talking earlier with neil about the public, all the little tricks they need to do to correct at this point. part of it was not as interesting but how do you explain the corrections made to the data. in the way that you are trying to extract a physical fact about the world and yet manipulating the data in many ways and you get to the bottom line and from this operation, the intensity of the star rather than something in the atmosphere. i tried to get those steps in the process. >> i want to leave this as a cliffhanger, and switched over to give us more background about this idea of the dark universe, this idea that there are things you can account for and see all around us in the room but also a lot of evidence that there's a dark universe, an unseen universe whose effect we feel even though we can't perceive it. >> something that gets to the heart of this anomaly, ok, something is accelerating differently. maybe newton is a little off. and the informatio
is in particular it addresses the increasing complexity of judging and handling cases and how technological what chances impact of the role of judges and he addresses the cases i think the particular interests, the district of columbia case and gun rights and so it's a strong book. >> is it an intellectual book or written for a general audience? >> the writing is very accessible and he is at this point in his career reflecting on his career in the cases and positions he has had it is meant for a general audience. >> what is one other book you want to share with us? >> we have an exciting book called the collaboration and we are looking forward to this book because he has gone through archives and found he is telling us story of the influence on hollywood working in the period of 1933 to 1940 and a couple strengths of the story and not just the influence of hollywood. the market in the global market. the german market would have this kind of influence. the film houses the would be that general market could be influential of hitler not just enough market but having their representation in hollywoo
about race relationship. talk about the revolution and communication. the revolution and technology. what are we going to do when the cold war is over? what about the social red -- revolution. not just the issue of race and gender. but the issue of ethnicity. how are we going to figure out how to look at ourselves as people rather than as card board stereo types of different populations that we have embedded in our brain. and so i went to nancy and i said to her, nancy, i really love this book. nobody read it. and grandmother stayed alive to tbsh -- finish it. i think we have to go to the publisher, really plead with the publisher to give us the copyright back, so that we can in fact reissue this in a way that americans moderate means can benefit from it. nancy immediately said yes. for that, i am eternally grateful. because then i went president clinton, and i said, mr. president, you know i love this book. will you read it? i want you to -- will write introduction. he looked at me -- it didn't take three second he said i've read the book, when do you want introduction? he cleared
of judging and handling cases how technological advances impact the role of judges and i think of a particular interest the district of columbia case it is a strong book. >> host: is it intellectual? >> guest: and the judge is right seeing very accessible and it does point in his career reflecting on his career of the position he has had it is meant for a general audience. >> what is one other book you want to share? >> it is called the collaboration and we're looking forward to this book because he has gone dry rock -- the archives and tells the story of hillers influence on hollywood 33 through 40 and a couple of things that not just hiller's influence of hollywood editing films wednesday that sentiment edited out and to have the films they and but not just in the german market but it is interesting favorite have this influence on the film house but it would matter a great lead to them put it to impact the film that were here in the united states and globally. >> host: that is a preview of some of the books coming out by a harvard university press this fall. >>. >> the buildi
's something really fascinating about how technology is really changing the format it into an extent, the content. so i really want to be a part of that, and i hope to be in the forefront. >> i come in from an alternate route as well. i did political science and economics in undergrad conflicted with everyone with decent grades and those majors does, and i went to law school. i spent a year there and had this was like, i don't like any of this. this doesn't interest me. it wasn't, there was nothing grabbing me about the jobs or the opportunities available. so i gathered my bearings together and said what do i enjoy? what do i like to do? for my whole life reading has been an books have been there. started exporting really got to make a career out of that? i was so fortunate to get my first internship with lippincott massie mcquilkin, and i really haven't looked back from there. love my work, product i work with everyday and i think of something totally different than the job and job prospects was looking for. so really enjoy the industry and looking to go further. >> i graduated with
, technology. they were put in an unenviable positions the my especially in consentual societies with public opinion and the bureaucracy of the elected technocracy that had given up. because i want to find people throughout history who should not have one and were not responsible for the big situation inherited, yet they prevailed. maybe they did not win it, but they saved it. >> i would love to go back and talk more about those great captains and the genres of history. first, i'd like to hear a little bit more about those huge dose. >> he save the b-2 nine campaign. george patton saved the american army after the humiliation of north africa. you can go on and on. i was looking particularly at situations that have chronological sweeps. themistocles of athens, all the way to add david patraeus and the surge, but i was also looking for things that were completely pessimistic. at think we could have won without patent or lemay, perhaps. but i don't think -- you take away themistocles from burnout athens and two-thirds of greek occupy, if there would have even thought. or without bill lasorda's
with technology innovation to help lower costs, so he's coming here to spotlight the kinds of things he's talking about in terms of how colleges can lower their costs and yet still maintain a good education. so he'll start here and then he'll go to a high school in syracuse where he'll also talk to students who are about to enter college and their parents who are about to pay for it. this is all part of a larger strategy based on what he calls his middle class program, and over the past several weeks he's given several speeches on different aspects of this program. he talked about jobs in one city, infrastructure in another city, housing in yet another city. he says it's education that he says is the key to the middle class. we're a knowledge many economy. if you're a college graduate, you've got a better chance of entering that knowledge economy and making more of an income. and on top of that, you know, basically he was on vacation last week, now he's getting back to the real grind, and we're heading into september where we're going to be looking at a lot of budget fights. the fiscal year ends
. >> host: in the dead body of the duplication, the science, technology, engineering and mathematics education programs. there are 209 of those, 100 plus, teacher quality et programs to the economic development, 88 transportation assistance, the financial literacy 56 different programs, job training is 47 different job training programs and 20 programs food for the hungry 18 in the disaster response preparedness 17 different programs. >> it's not that we have that many programs. but as outlandish as we don't know if they are working because when they are passed, there is nothing that says you have to have a metric to see if it is accomplishing the goal and the biggest defect of the congress since i have been here has been well lack of oversight of most of the programs. >> host: taking it to the floor to get rid of some of these duplicative programs what happened. >> guest: we had one for $2 million passed all of the rest failed. all of these programs have constituencies in. by the way we found another 52 programs for job training for the disabled. so we have 106 job-training programs
from home, and we have technology and stuff that helps the disabled, and so the explosion in costs is hard to understand, and this shows disability recipients for workers, and, again, it's a same story. you have this massive in connection with, yet as a society, we're not more disabled. one more point they make is that, you know, it's a disability program, but low and behold, applications for disability move with the unemployment rate or generally how the economy's going. it goes back to that incident at walmart where i heard the woman say, well, i could take a pay cut or get on disability. since the recession, it's taken off, up to $57 billion this year. again, of the 8.3 million recipients, 7.1 million are disabled. there's fewer elderly people on ssi today than there was at the program's inception, and of particular concern is the share of children on this program, which is really taking off. as i show there, there's one from 4% in 1980 to 16%. a lot of this is because of the liberalization of disability qualifications, and, in particular, the sullivan against zelby case in 1990
and process that information or to lay down a memory. we don't know how it works. with technology, you have to be invented so a lot of this is going to be technology and a lot of it's going to be nanotechnology. what we introduced be able to record may be hundreds of thousands of brain cells at the same time and be able therefore to understand how the circuits work. that's the brain activity being talked about. very early days and we don't really have the scientific plan about milestones and timetables and costs that is getting to be a very exciting moment in putting something together. c-span: the article says it will be harder to do that than the human genome project. do you agree? >> guest: i think i would agree. the human genome project had a clear in point. this brain map is hard to say when he would complete the effort to cut his brain is enormously complicated. 100 trillion cells and all the ways they interact with each other. we will never be able to say we got it varied wind or stand it and it will be an ongoing effort so we have to nail down what are we talking about here and not
of that giant pipe. they are moving technology that would make the pipe essentially undifferentiated. all the same stuff but the gatekeeper the cable company can pick and choose among communications and look at whatever it wants to, send some communications. in topeka when you thought you were going to chicago all twisting dials that would remove the threat to them of competition from services that they would like to sell to americans. think of anything home security video whatever it is, cable guys can choose what will feel more alive to the consumer and can pick and choose among what goes on line and deliver that to households. it's like living in a gated community. taking the idea of the internet which is all about not having to ask permission and being able to ask anybody in the world and sticky mats on top of the infrastructure which absolutely is controlled by four or five gatekeepers. there is a big conflict there and the threats are very real. >> host: you you have been restrained so far in your book is very much a story about. you mentioned 45 cable companies. the threat you are
an a world war with no technology , no more than 40 monuments officers' ever in 100 and northern europe, if we can do the job we did then we can certainly do a better job today that is why in 2007 for the preservation of life to show a few minutes of the initial years of our work. ♪ ♪ >> in particular general eisenhower of our cultural treasures is the return of the stolen property the monuments mint those that affected the policy, their legacy is rich and filled how to protect cultural treasures. but their legacy has all that been lost. we as a nation pay a high price for not having utilized that and time is running now. we are announcing today the creation of the preservation of art the mission is to preserve the legacy of the budget and then during world war ii to raise public awareness of the importance of protecting civilization's most important artistic and cultural treasures. >> recognizing the monuments nin and what we are doing today is very appropriate. thank you for the awareness of this part of preservation in the world for the future. video. >> [inaudible] >> event also
credentials related to resilience. in real life i'm a small business woman who runs the technology company and then the kind of have a second life as a volunteer. so what i really have is just a practical expense of what happened in joplin. so, i don't have one set of experience but it seems like i have a lot of it. and in terms of rick rescorla, certain what he did in comparison to what i did in joplin, which is facilitate a lot of meetings and heard a lot of cats, there's nothing in comparison. but i will take that i think we made some really great progress in joplin as a result of the tornado. the five seconds statistical mark, 161 lives lost, 18,000 cars destroyed, 7500 buildings damaged, 4000 of those destroyed. 3 million cubic yards of debris removed, larger than the world trade center disaster. we had a lot of damage in a really short time and it went through an older section of town, and all the way across our town. when the winds were at their highest speed over 200 miles an hour it was moving at its slowest. so i can tell you that i could go and stand and not see anything toleran
of interceptors and at this point we don't have the capability to intercept from china but the technology is progressing steadily and slowly so it may be beyond the ten year horizon. what does the dialogue look like and what does that act will dynamic as the numbers and keep the of the interceptors improved and is there a way that we can talk with china to keep the strategic stability without costing them to go higher and more sophisticated in their nuclear capability. >> i hope there is that it seeks to to dialogue and china has a long track record of resisting american and its own leadership in this dialogue area. let me be clear you have a good modifier but almost an arms race or an arms race response recall ten years ago rumsfeld articulated a concern defending the number of nuclear weapons under the moscow treaty, the strategic treaty defending that right number in part because it dealt with a potential sprint to parity by china. ten years later there was no sprint or parity so we need to be careful as we characterize what china is up to. in my assessment china is modernizing and div
computer. which happens right in the 1979, 1980 time period. do you see technology as playing a role even in backstage in the hint of this new order that would come in the stories? >> guest: absolutely. the rise of tell commune cailings is usually important. he communicated with the state-of-the-art telephone switching system installed by the americans for the shaw. he called up anybody in iran at the moment to's notice. it was hugely important. with the help of satellite, of course, which were come down and satellite communication were important. i think you see at love different level which the technology was influencing this. pc were not yet there. but i think they >> host: if you were to do a followup where is your next? does go 1979, 1989, is that going to be the next part? >> guest: that's a good question. i don't think i'm going write a year again. it's going to be something dotely dpircht -- totally different. >> host: in term of the response you have got son far. what have you made of what the critics had to say? >> guest: i'm happy with it. i feel a lot of people got the book. w
, if there's true leaders with the credibility to take their country forward, technology can find them, so in that sense, there's a level playing field, but you can't overnight. >> you talked about building up new leaders, but it's different in the virtual world than it is. physical world. >> i think we came to the conclusion that it's easy to say technology drives all the changes, but the essence of human leadership is very hard, very important, very person dependent, and very much dependent upon the charisma and ability to get people excited and motivated, and those are skills it will take a long time for computers to get to. >> jen? >> assuming you're right opposed to plato about -- >> assumptions, okay. [laughter] >> and anonymity sure to say. what's that say about cyber crime, then? you've been a victim of it at your company and so forth. do we have to completely separate networks that have to be secure like controlling nuclear power plants and that sort of thing? >> we better, i hope those are separate from the internet. >> well, that's right, but i mean, it's a much bigger thing to
the world -- put the world back the way it was. use your technology skills to help us find ways to protect these cultural treasures that are under fire around the world today. on not smart enough to necessarily know how to do it, but in speak to the opportunities for us to establish this position that we once held. it's an opportunity to use these technology skills to help us find and put us in contact with families to have veterans were displaced persons during world war ii that have things that in the years that i going to come coming this the rest of our world war ii veterans, lost my dad five years ago, the things that are hanging on walls and in basements and attics. it will all have a new owner. a great risk to these things that may be in foreign languages or old, musty documents. this is the chance to help with the tip of the iceberg were getting ready. help these things give back to the people that they belong to. so it's a great moment. for that reason we are spending a lot of time with the work on the foundation. the film coming up. all be headed back to berlin. when i'm done wit
not gather in the hotel in washington d.c. who did not have the technology or the tools that we had our who could that imagine having a black president or black attorney general. they did not turn back and we cannot either. we are so blessed because god is on our side. we're so blessed to be here together. we're so blessed to have leadership together we will keep moving forward when it comes to fight for justice. we cannot and we will not, we shall not be moved in our struggles that it is a reality. thank you so much.
